Loan Repayment... does this exist anymore??

  1. When I first decided to go to nursing school (3-4 yrs ago) everyone told me oh your employer will pay back your loans or pay for your school. I actually knew a couple of RN's that had their tuitions paid in full for signing a contract to work somewhere X amount of yrs. Does this even happen anymore? I am a LPN and do not expect to be hired at a hospital as an LPN but I am going straight to get my RN and was wondering if I will be stuck with massive loans to pay off once I finish. What about IN or KY? Anything that would offer any assistance at all? Thanks so much!

    I know that there are hospital diploma based RN programs that still do this. But I dont think that many colleges and universities do it anymore

    Both Cleveland Clinic and UH will help you pay for school in exchange for a 2 year commitment - I think they give you $5,000 for every 1 year of commitment up to a $10,000 maximum.

    Both hospitals will also help you pay for school if you already work there and want to continue your education. OhioHealth does this as well.

    Here's some information about loan repayment. I just received an updated email regarding the deadline for the application. Check out the website.

    I hope this can help someone! There is information regarding requirements and links for the application as well.
